Re: Broad Question / My General Answer

Thanks Bernard, that is fascinating.
Perhaps my taste will continue to improve/mature.
I'm still a sucker for the zingy golden/orange lume, particularly on a 2447S, where I think it contrasts brilliantly against the dial.
I totally understand the arguments for authenticity & originality though.
Kind regards

: The dark lume color of the hands of this watch is the best there
: is.
: Well for me. I have done relumes in that color. :-)
: I really see no problem at all.
: Reluming the hands of this watch in particular would be the biggest
: crime ever.
: Of course, one could say it's a matter of taste. I don't agree, it
: would simply be a bad decision.
: Best,
: Bernard
